Troubleshooting: Before You Make that Call
If you wake up one morning to a freezing cold home, you obviously have an issue with your furnace. It may only involve some simple troubleshooting steps to get back up and running. It is critically important, though, that you don’t ever try to perform any sort of complex repairs on your own.
Not only will you run the risk of seriously injuring yourself or someone else, you could also void your warranty. Always leave any kind of emergency furnace repair work to a professional. However, there are some simple steps you can take at home. Try a little troubleshooting on your own before calling for 24-hour furnace repair in Ann Arbor.
Here are some of the steps to take:
- Make sure the unit is properly connected to its power source – Check to see whether any fuses have blown or any circuit breakers have tripped.
- Check to see if there is a reset button on your unit near the motor – If the motor is cool, push the button. If the motor is still warm, wait 30 minutes before trying to reset.
- If your system has a separate power switch, make sure it has not been turned off by accident.
- Make sure your thermostat is set properly.
- If you have a gas unit, make sure the pilot light is on and that gas is being supplied.
How Do I Know If My Furnace Thermostat is Bad?
The thermostat is the communicator of a furnace. It reads the temperature outside and tells the system when to turn on. And like your other HVAC systems, it can go bad. The average thermostat lasts for about 10 years. Passed this time, it starts to break down.
Signs Your Furnace Thermostat Is Going Bad:
- Room temperature and what’s listed on thermostat don’t match
- The furnace won’t turn on
- The thermostat is unresponsive or has no power
- Your furnace keeps short cycling
Why Won’t My Furnace Turn On?
Michigan winters are relentlessly cold, which is why a functioning furnace is vital! When the temperature drops, the last thing you want is a heating system that won’t turn on. There are a couple of reasons why this might happen.
2 Reasons Your Furnace Won’t Start:
- Circuit Breaker – If you use too much energy at once, it can trip the circuit breaker causing the furnace to turn off. To fix this, you simply have to reset your circuit breaker.
- Thermostat: The thermostat communicates the temperature to the heating system. If the furnace won’t start, it might be because the thermostat has lost its programming, has reset, or is broken.

Typical Furnace Repair Cost
On average, the cost to repair a furnace is around $270 across the nation. The majority of homeowners who run a furnace heating system end up paying between $135 and $422 for their repair service. Of course, the majority of furnace systems tend to break down during the winter months. This is the time when many homeowners are running their systems on a daily basis. While most furnaces are quite efficient, even the newest models cannot maintain their output for all hours of the day, every day of the week.

Furnace Upkeep: When to Replace Your Furnace Filter
We advise you to change your furnace filter at least once every four to six weeks during the heating season. During the air conditioning season, however, change the filter at least once per month. Examine the furnace filter monthly to discover whether the unit is dirty and needs to have its filter changed. Changing your filter improves indoor air quality and reduces the need for repairs over time.
You may actually need to change the filter more often than the recommended amount, depending on a few different factors. These factors include whether or not you have animals that shed in the home, if anyone smokes within the home, how often you run the heating and cooling systems, and whether or not you maintain a good maintenance schedule to keep the whole system running efficiently.
